I typically try to blog about writing on Wednesdays, but I can't think of anything to discuss this week. Editing on the novel is on a steady, even keel (slow, but steady) and I also revisited a story this week, but nothing happened to spark conversation. So instead, I'll show you a way in which I wasted a good deal of writing time a few months back.
I decided I wanted a detailed map of Kennedy Space Center, Titusville, and the surrounding area so I could have an accurate picture in my mind of where everything happens in my novel. After spending a long time online trying to find a printable map, I gave up and made one from google maps, one six-inch square at a time.
What's the most time-consuming task you've done to distract yourself from writing?
